FLiving in the town where all the soldiers trained to leave for WWI keeps the war right in the centre of your vision. Yesterday a sculpture was unveiled for remembrance of those who fought, and those who were left behind.
It’s also the time of year that knitted poppies appear, perfect for yarn bombing. A few years ago this pattern was released. And we made this ANZAC wreath for the school which hangs during our commemorations.
All going well this pattern goes live at 11:11 on the 11 of November, NZ time.
You will need:
- 4mm knitting needles
- DK red yarn
- Darning needle
- Black button
Cast on 40 stitches.
K2, P2 over the whole row for 6 rows.
K2 tog, P2 tog over whole row
K1, P1 rib for 3 rows
Cut yarn, thread through the remaining 20 stitches and pull tight. Shape into a circle, stitch the side together. Darn in the tails. Sew a black button into the centre of the flower.
Use to create a wreath, a brooch, or yarn bombing…. or any other yarn based decoration.

So easy, just whipped it up in about 1/2 hour! Thanks for sharing! 💕
Beautiful. Thank you so much for the pattern. I’ve been looking for ages for a suitable pattern, very little stitching. I will be taking it to the U3a in preparation for the Poppy Day appeal.
Wonderful – I am so glad that you like it and that it is being used for a good cause.
